Syracuse University Libraries to Host Qualtrics Webinars
Syracuse University Libraries is hosting its annual Qualtrics webinar workshops on Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. beginning Oct. 10 and running through Nov. 21. The seven webinar workshops will provide participants with information on using the University’s online survey software. Available to Syracuse University faculty, staff and students, the software enables users to create and distribute complex surveys and analyze responses from a single online platform. The workshops, listed below, will be held online using Blackboard Collaborate; however, users do not need to have Blackboard Collaborate installed on their computer to participate. Participants must register in advance for any of the free workshops they wish to attend via Qualtrics Workshops.
